Biomass production and development
The Bambou-Assainissement® eco-wastewater treatment plants have the advantage of producing significant amounts of high quality biomass that can be recovered. Bamboo is one of the most wood productive plants. And its biomass has very interesting characteristics: higher heating value (HHV between 5,000 and 5,400 kWh/ton of dry matter, similar to the one of broad-leaved tree species), combustion producing very little ash which limits fouling in combustion systems, high tensile strength (6 times more resistant than steel for the same mass ratio) which permits this biomass to be used in many different ways and particularly in the building, furniture, textile, paper, food, pharmaceutical industries and others.
Annual biomass production
(Tons of dry matter/hectare/year)
10 to 33 in temperate climate
Up to 47 in tropical climate
|Miscanthus||12 to 30|
|Willow||10 to 15|
|Poplar||10 to 15|
Every PHYTOREM® eco-wastewater treatment plant project including biomass recovery is subject to a specific study of the recovery processes, including tests which are necessary for pre-industrialization.
Our R&D department is at your disposal for any specific study.
PHYTOREM examines the different recovery ways for your project according to the local economic context.
